Registration will open January 11 for
TheCollinsGroup 2019 Spring Education Weekend

April 5-7, 2019
Doubletree Pittsburgh Airport
Moon Township, PA

Participating Vendors Include: 

This is a similar format to our Dallas show this past September.  

Show Format: 
For this event, there will be one large classroom for 2.5 days. There will be no breakouts or class options. Attendees will attend all sessions. We will have about 16-18 vendors either teaching a 60 or 90-minute class or doing a 15-minute presentation on their latest release. Each evening will include an order-writing session with the day’s vendors offering great show specials and door prizes. In addition, based upon feedback from the Dallas show, we are adding a mini Sample Making Frenzy to the order writing session each night where vendors will setup make-and-takes for you to do while they are writing orders with other store owners.

With this format and reduced pricing, a boxed lunch (or similar) will be included on Saturday and Sunday. NO OTHER FOOD AND BEVERAGE SERVICE WILL BE INCLUDED during the event.
